Do Ye Not Know That Ye Are the Temple of God? The 2022 Michener Lecture

The SEYM Publications Committee is pleased to offer this video of the 2022 Dwight & Ardis Michener Lecture, presented by Nancy Fennell on January 16, 2022. About 100 Friends gathered online to hear the lecture, which was sponsored by the SEYM Worship and Ministry Committee.

Nancy led us in exploring what it means for us, as individuals and as Quaker meeting communities, to be “the temple of God” (I Cor. 3:16). The two major functions of a temple are to provide a place of worship and to serve under the leadings of God. Nancy shares spiritual practices that help both individuals and the community be ‘temples;’ and how our meetings can be, and are called to be, places of gathered worship, witness, service, love and compassion.

SEYM Publications is offering this video on a ‘donate as led’ basis. 

Please donate to help cover our expenses!
